Winter Window Dressing
I dressed the Potting Shed window boxes for winter with greenery and snowflakes!
I added a little winter sparkle to the window boxes of the Potting Shed, biding my time until spring planting season.
My window boxes looked a little bare and in need of decoration after I removed the red ornaments from Christmas.
I refreshed the greenery from Christmas, cutting a mixture of pine, magnolia, cedar, juniper and added a few pine cones to the window boxes. I placed the greenery directly into the soil that was left in the boxes from the fall. The soil holds the greenery in place and provides some moisture to keep the greenery fresh longer.
I found snowflake marquee lights during a flurry of shopping in December, on sale at Target.
I placed them in the center of the winter boxes to twinkle among the greenery.
I propped them against a grapevine wreath to hold them upright and added a spray of faux icy branches.
The lights came with a 4 hour timer to turn on and glow.
Seasonal with snowflakes in the forecast! More photos at the link below.
